Statutory Moderation and Assessment


Welcome to Slough’s statutory moderation and assessment.  

This area of the service ensures that Schools are aware of and can comply with the statutory assessment arrangements at each key stage. It also provides appropriate support and training for making accurate judgements.

The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) require that all schools, regardless of academy or maintained status, must have KS1 and KS2 assessments moderated and monitored by a Local Authority (LA) as a statutory requirement at least every four years.  These visits take place in May and June each year.
